No less than <I>Vogue</i> magazine has praised NYC-based designer Nili Lotan for her exquisitely tailored, androgynous women's clothing. Lotan’s wardrobe offerings include elegant linen sweaters and pants, flowing maxi dresses, cotton voile beach dresses, and other separates; many pieces reveal the designer's keen eye for unique Italian and Japanese fabrics. Lotan's approach to her work (stenciled across the walls of her boutique) is that “Neither loud nor aggressive, clothes should be clean and sophisticated.” A fruitful collaboration with J. Crew has brought her effortless style to a wider audience.
